THE NEWS
You can now conduct a comprehensive search for available real estate and properties at or near Utah's ski resorts and mountain communities on just one website.  And this same site contains a wealth of information on each of the resorts, important factors to consider when buying property or building in an alpine environment, and a full complement of Google maps, mortgage calculators, etc.
 
Utah Ski Country Homes and Land for Sale has the most comprehensive listing of available properties in Utah's fabled ski country.  Each listing links to a full page of information and a photo of the property, and then directly to the agent or owner's contact information.
If you're searching for real estate, you can conduct in-depth research on numerous properties, their location, and the resorts and communities within a 25 mile radius.  When you also consult Utah Ski Country Real Estate Comparative Statistics, you will have a very complete and detailed take on everything you need to know to make a wise and appropriate decision related to which properties to pursue through the owners or agents.
If you are trying to sell real estate, listing and promoting your property on Utah Ski Country Homes and Land for Sale would be an invaluable sales tool.  The site appears at or near the top of the major search engines and is linked to other key sites those interested in Utah skiing visit in masse, such as Ski Utah and Go Utah.  Many prospective buyers consult this site, and view its listings, as a first step in their property search. 
Statistics from numerous surveys and studies show that each year more and more prospective real estate buyers conduct research on the internet before contacting a real estate agent or the property owner.  When looking for homes, condos, fractional ownerships or land outside their home area, as is the case with many individuals looking to purchase property at or close to a ski resort, this already high percentage rises up dramatically.  One can imagine a day in the not-too-distant future when a web listing is as critical to selling property as a cell phone is to taking calls related to the property you are trying to sell.
Utah ski resort real estate continues to show signs of recovery, although it varies from resort to resort.
 
It's still very much a buyer's market related to Utah ski resort real estate, but the inventory of heavily discounted properties is being depleted and some markets are showing consistent upticks in key statistical measurements.  The Ogden Valley, Brighton/Solitude, Alta/Snowbird and the Salt Lake City bench had the strongest numbers in July in terms of units sold, median price, percentage of sales price to original asking price, and days on the market (Utah Ski Country Real Estate Comparative Statistics).  This trend toward a recovery, with some minor fluctuations, has been consistent over the past couple of months.
Take advantage of the lingering buyer's market for Utah ski properties, shop for your dream home or lot, and enjoy the numerous activities and events all along the Wasatch front this summer.
According to Ski Utah (comprehensive listing), the following is a sample of what will be available to Utah visitors and residents alike over the late spring and summer months. Each resort website and chambers of commerce have complete listings of events and activities.
